/11 and fighting our enemies and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive in the war but the problem is we are retreating around the world and emboldening our enemies. if rand paul wants to be to the left of the obama administration, he can try. maybe there is some support for that. >>chris: the president thinks that "bringing our troops home" but not in a rush but that is a winning message and the last campaign, frankly, republicans everyone not talking a lot about open-ended foreign commitments. does the g.o.p. need to recognize and respond to a war wearyness? >> the drone issue and war wearyness are two different issues. rand paul's war on drones is a war on a pretty successful tight against terrorism. i am not sure where that gets us. i agree with bill, the g.o.p. doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what the republicans lost were moderates in the election. 5 percent of moderates went to self described moderates, went to president obama, not the party. that is who you need to get back. do you not do it by a drone going after drones
supported the bush administration after 9/11 and fighting epimieses and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive. the problem is that we are retreating all around the world and unfortunately emboldening our enemies. if rand paul wants to run to the left of the obama administration he is tree to ned ahat in the republican minute. maybe this is more is support for that than i think but i doubt there really is. >> chris: nina, the president thinks bringing the troops home not in a rush but steadily and eventually is a winning message in the last campaign, frankly not talking about open-ended commitments. does the gop need to recognize and respond to a war weariness in the country? >> i think the drone issue and war we areness are two totally different issues. rand paul's war and drones is a war on a pretty successful fight against terrorism right now. i'm not sure where that gets us. i agree with bill that the gop doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what we -- what the republicans lost were moderates new election. thin in the 56%
for ronald reagan and, been in the bush administration and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive but that we are retreating all over the world as unfortunately, emboldening our enemies and if rand paul wants to run to the left of the obama administration, he's free to try and maybe there is more support than i think but i'm doubtful that there really is. >> chris: nina, the president clearly thinks that, quote, bringing our troops home, not in a rush, but, steadily, and, eventually, is a winning message and in the last campaign, frankly, republicans were not talking a lot about open-ended foreign commitments. so does the g.o.p. need to recognize and respond to a war-weariness in the country. >> i think the drone issue and war-weariness are two different issues and rand paul's war on drones is a sort of a war on a pretty successful fight against terrorism, right now and i'm not sure where it gets us. i agree with bill. you know, the g.o.p. doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what we -- what the republicans lost were moderates.
is not on the obama administration's side either. no prior administration, republican or democrat, has ever attempted to waive the work requirements in the 16 years between the law's enactment and the july, 2012, information memorandum. following the july, 2012, action, the government accountability office looked into this and, quote, did not find any evidence that h.h.s. stated it has authority to issue waivers related to tanf work requirements, end quote. in short, no administration attempted to waive the work requirements because they knew it was illegal to do so. and finally, if we need more evidence that despite their promises to the contrary, the administration's policy would weaken the work requirement, we need look no further than the nonpartisan congressional budget office. this states $61 million over 10 years, because c.b.o. recognizes the administration's waivers will allow some states that will otherwise pay penalties failing to meet the work requirement. in addition to -- the legislation before us extends the tanf program's authorization at current funding levels through the remainder o

and then was expanded in the obama administration. but the obama administration, like the chinese, hasot admitted to having offensive cyber warriors so it's hard to imagine how we're going to have an honest conversation with the chinese about limiting these activities if neither country will even admit to owning weapons. >> rose: how much of the hacking comes from the united states and has nothing to do or is not even in any way monitored by the u.s. government? >> well hard thing to know becauset's very difficult to collec statistics thi aa. the u.s. government says that unlike the chinese, they do not do any hacking in order to steal corporate secrets. they're not out hacking on behalf of american companies. they only participate in operations that are focused on defending and that include the critical infrastructure. the infrastructure of the united states isn't in government hands it's mowly in private hands with a few ceptions and ey're having a hard time dng that. >> rose: are the chinese better at hacking than we are. >> they are certainly higher volume hackers but the sophistication of
dropped a bombshell accusation against the obama administration. what he is claiming is now happening to the survivors. that's just ahead. bill: emotional testimony from the wife an american pastor jailed in iran. are her pleas for help falling on deaf ears? she will join us live next for the latest on that. martha: battle of the budgets, two very different ideas here. why house budget committee chairman paul ryan says his plan he believes is the right one. >> i would argue it is the president who has been missing in action on this front. he knows we have a debt crisis coming. all independent experts show us this. and so he hasn't even given us a budget yet. bill: 16 past. new warnings of a many looking debt crisis from house budget committee chair paul ryan arguing that his budget plan is what americans want and is the country's best chance to get a handle on this before it gets too late. here's paul ryan. >> house republicans have been offering budgets every year on this. so, yeah, people have been ducking these tough issues. people are hoping to use these issues to beat the other p
's reaching epidemic levels under the obama administration. >> they are waiting and waiting and waiting. hundreds of thousands of veterans who still have not received the care they were promised when they came home. zack mcilwain is one of them. he fought in iraq not once but twice, coming back with a hand injury that caused an infection that almost killed him. almost three years later he is still waiting for some of his benefits from the department of veterans affairs. >> what does it mean that more than 970 days later the va still has not accepted your claim. >> i am just kind of sinking in quick sand just waiting for something to happen. >> the va disputes this arguing that zach's claim has not been ignored. it's been denied. but the larger travesty is this. the problem with processing benefits claims for veterans has gone from bad to worse under the obama administration. one va office in north carolina had claims stacked so high the building was at risk of collapsing. a new study from the center for investigative reporting found that since president obama took office the number of v
three times higher in the obama administration. the number of new establishments, entrepreneurial activity, for the year-ending march 2010 --march, 2010, was lower than any other year since the series began. since they began keeping record, mr. speaker. in 2010 under this administration's stimulus policies, entrepreneurial activity was at the lowest level in america since we began keeping records. i don't mean at the lowest level of people succeeding. i mean the lowest level of people trying. the lowest level of people trying, mr. speaker. what does it mean about us? what does it mean about our future when we have beaten the enthusiasm to try out of our people? frightened it out of our people. mr. speaker, that's not just a department of labor report. we talk a lot about that. what is it that the guys down at the agencies are producing, those technical reports. ill a tell you what they are producing, i'll tell you the impact it's had. the federal register, mr. speaker, i don't he know if you picked up a copy since you have been here. the federal register measures all the new regul

, there is some body of thinking on capitol hill oddly enough, among the republicans, the obama administration has support with the republicans on the hill who agree with this plan to allow these short blade knives, no more than 2.3 inches to be allowed in carry-ones because they think the tsa has gone too far anyway. there are strange bedfellows in in particular argument. but the tsa is really getting an earful right now. >> the flight attendants, the unions, he started this online petition to keep the knives off planes. we're watching this press conference. the unification of groups coming together to talk about this. is it going to be more up to the american people to get involved than the unions or will we see the fact as we watch the tsa chief talk about standing by his decision on this, is it really going to be up to the american people to voice their concerns? >> well, i think that that's always in the democracy, that's always the way things work. by the way, that's sara nelson who represents the flight attendants. i interviewed her yesterday. her argument is this. we've spent the last 11 y
difficult for patty murray and the obama administration to follow up on. >> well, but it fits in with what the president wants which is to give more tax relief to the middle class. i simply have to say as i always do, that though is something that flies in the face of what a lot of economists and former president clinton say have to happen over the long term which is taxes need to go up on the middle class. >> the president has been questioned about fairness and saying if you look at sort of the way that dow is going, you look at sort of the incredible profits on corporations. they're not paying their fair share. but to go back to the issue at hand, i really think the speaker -- >> how do you define fair, cornell? if you tax 100%, you don't get rid of the debt problem. so what is fair? >> i think it is a visceral main street issue. when working americans are paying sort of more taxes than warren buffett, i think you get the sense that it not fair. when you have large corporations and big oil companies raking in huge profits and not paying taxes that, is not fair. >> if you look at the oil
to no good. we need to have access to that. did you know there was a plan in the obama administration to provide the intelligence community, which is a misnomer, by the way, to have the intelligence establishment have access to any and all records. what is there left to defend? you take away the essence of everything there is about that because there could be a chance that you are doing something wrong. what is happening? we are in this space where anything is suspicious. any and all data. in my case, i was utterly framed. not only was information mischaracterized, but misrepresented and that time even doctored. what does that tell you? because it is all done in secret. you become a target of the government. i have lived this for five years. you become a target of the government. it's not a life that i want anyone to live. another thing to share with you, and i have not said this directly. everyone was associated with me either because i used to work for me or had links to me or typed me, by association, that freedom to do so in the first amendment, investigated, interrogated, and som
of the obama administration have done to our economy does look at the election of 2010. republicans regained scenes in a way that has not been done in 50 years. people are not very happy about this far left liberal that is leading us to this -- to destruction. thank you from the call. just a point about the clinton budget, i know the difference about this debt crisis and when bill clinton was in office our economy was not as fragile. guest: we have had external shocks with the situation in europe and japan. we're still recovering from a financial crisis. the unemployment is still very high. that does make a lot harder to focus on austerity and reducing the deficit when you have so many people out of work. they cannot pay their taxes, they are holding back the full recovery. host: press secretary j conti credit for a charge the said a percentage of the gdp, the debt is lower than it was when barack obama first took office. what was he referring to? guest: it was the debt or deficit, possibly. yearbly the year to deficit. in 2010 the deficit was 1.4 trillion dollars. that is the gap between go
, when i learned about the latest casualty in the obama administration's war on coal. joy global, a manufacture of underground mining equipment, operates a plant in neighboring bourbon county. the news had just broken that joy global plans to cease all operations in manufacturing at that plant. the story of joy global is timely in light of president obama's nomination of gina mccarthy to lead the environmental protection agency. mr. barr: i wish those who are responsible for the war on coal could have been with me that friday morning. it's easy to sit in washington and issue regulations when you don't have to confront the human cost. the obama administration's war on coal costs more than 3,000 well-paying coal mining jobs in kentucky last year. thousands of families potentially went from healthy incomes to food stamps, but this administration doesn't appear to care. the coal industry supports 19,000 full-time jobs in kentucky while providing our state with the anything's fourth lowest utility rates. mr. speaker, it's time the administration put people ahead of its radical agenda.
. if you look the last four years and a policy the obama administration has put in place, it is higher taxes, and burdensome regulations, have made it more expensive for job creators to create jobs and have resulted in sluggish economic growth. we have had .8% growth for the past four years. you would hope the democrats will be looking at policies that will grow the economy. what you're hearing is it will be more of the same. we are talking about a $1 trillion tax increase, more expensive -- more spending and nothing to save social security and medicare reform and those programs in a way that will align them with the feature demographics of this country. it is more the same policies with regard to their budget. we think there is a better way and will look for opportunities to offer amendments that will put that out -- that will point that out. the democrat budget will make it more difficult for stock traders to get back to work. -- for job creators to creat e jobs to get people back to work. >> there was a story today that talked-about the number of democrats griping about the presiden

eight years of the bush administration. the republicans have forced 30 filibuster votes on president obama's nominations and apparently they say they're just getting started. not to mention the national labor relations board. we could go on and on. let's turn now to former senator tom daschle who is the former majority leader for the democrats and author of the book "the u.s. senate." tom, great to see you, good to have you with us tonight. >> great to be with you, ed. >> you bet. well, in your book, the u.s. senate, what do you say about filibusters now? >> well, it's been abused, you're absolutely right. the numbers speak for themselves. we have more than twice as many cloture votes in the last congress, ed, as we did in the 50-year period between 1917 and 1967. that was a time during the civil rights era and vietnam and all of the other things we faced. twice as many in two years as we did in 50. that's all you need to know about the abuse of filibusters today. >> yeah. you're a close friend, worked with him for years, harry reid, what should he do? what can he do? >> well, harry'

a new administration firmly believed, whether you agree with them or not, that its predecessor, george w. bush, had been fighting essentially a war on islam. that was the view on the arab street and the obama folks went out very directly in cairo in 2009 to rebut that. now, that had some collateral damage particularly among the israeli public which seems to have forgotten in large measure that the level of cooperation, be it economic, military, intelligence sharing between the two courts has never exceeded what now finds with president obama. >> i'm going to leave it on that point. jim warren and joy reid, thank you for joining us this evening. >> thank you. >>> ahead, michele bachmann running from reality? sorry congressman. you can run but you can't hide from the truth. plus, in tonight's nice try but we've got you segment, what could possibly go wrong? don't worry, we've got them. >>> and march madness is here. college basketball going wild. but republicans have found another way to go after the president. i'll be stuffing their weak stuff coming up. >>> have you joined the "politicsn
